My name is Skúli Kristinsson and I was born in 1961.
I started fly-tying and fly-fishing in 1979. Until 1988 most of my fishing was in lakes for trout, with a few days of salmon fishing every season.
In 1988 I began working as a river keeper in Elliðarár River that runs through the centre of Reykjavík.
Since 1990 I have been tying salmon flies and tubes professionally. 1998 I started guiding in West and East Rangá for angling club Lax-á the largest salmon and trout outfitter in Iceland. Before that I was guiding in West Ranga for Angling service Strengir.
I was a camp-manager in East Rangá from 1998-2005 and from 2006 I have working just as a guide which is much more fun. Most of my fly tying is now tubes and small salmon flies.
On the show I will be tying small tungsten tubes using materials from tubeworx and funky flytying for trout, sea trout and salmon.
I live in the beautiful countryside of Iceland, about an hour from the capital, Reykjavík, were I run a small guesthouse with my wife. All around the guesthouse is trout, salmon and char fishing in lakes and our private beat on the Brúará river.
You can follow us at facebook (sel guesthouse) to see photos and get more information.
I will have more information about the fishing and the guesthouse at the show.
Looking forward to seeing you.
